Fun foil in the sun with T1 and Bob. Was a bit underdone at first with plenty of groveling but in the gusts just perfect. Done my first alpha today that was actually a gybe not a tack. Bob provided a bit of entertainment but also got some reasonably good flights too and top speed of the day at 25kn. T1 had the right idea and put up the 7.5 and was flying. After a pit stop the wind had increased and I was overpowered in the gusts causing a few crashes. Should be a bit of Tubby drone footage available later.

Got the call from Dodgy Roger it was foilnday. Nice sunny skies, nice breeze and a couple of mates, top day. As for foiling, 3rd go and first in 3 months, great fun but some crazy flights. Got a 25 on the dial which really deflated Rainbow and Rog, but I guess even after a few GPS watch choices nothing was going to help my speed. Having said that 17 felt like 30+, eyeballs like dinner plates and nuts like peas. Only a short session but I'm easing into it
Fanatic foil, 6.6 Koncept and a rubber.
